ALSS learners visit Hammersmith library

ESOL Enrichment Activity

As part of an enrichment activity, ESOL learners from H&F’s Macbeth Centre were given a tour by Anne Cooper, the customer service manager for Hammersmith library.  

The trip was arranged to introduce learners to H&F’s local services and resources such as language learning software, audio books, women’s health services, free legal advice, free access to computers and much more.

History and art

The tour included information about the history of the 1905 Grade II listed building, the sculptures of Shakespeare and Milton by Frederick Schenk, the stained glass windows which features literary figures including Chaucer, Spenser and Bacon and access to the archive room accessed by a marble staircase or lift.


Thank you very much for your arrangement for the visit to the library, it was a very wonderful experience and I enjoyed very much! Thank you again!
